The Virtue RF Microneedling Platform is the most advanced RF microneedling device available today. The combination of radio-frequency and microneedling has become a proven, non-invasive option to visibly improve skin. What makes Virtue RF different is your provider’s ability to fully customize your treatment with multiple settings, handpieces, and depths and offer absolute comfort and a superior experience.
How does RF Microneedling work?
Microneedling works by applying sterile microneedles deep into the dermis of the skin. These needles 1) create microscopic channels deep within the dermis to stimulate the natural production of collagen and 2) deliver radio-frequency heat energy at the desired depths to promote the remodeling of collagen and elastin that tightens and lifts the skin.
When can you expect to see results?
A benefit of RF Microneedling is that the collagen you build is your own, so results are natural, and immediate and will continue to improve with time. It can take up to 4-6 weeks until the full benefits are apparent.
What makes Virtue RF a virtually pain-free treatment?
Virtue RF microneedles are driven into the skin using the exclusive robotic precision delivery (RPD) system. The insertion is so exact that it creates no tearing or trauma to the skin (unlike microneedling pens or other RF microneedling systems that can scratch the skin, causing pain, blood, and sebum in the channels and mixed outcomes). Typically, your provider will apply numbing cream prior to the treatment depending on the area of concern for added comfort.
What can you expect after a treatment?
One of the key benefits of a Virtue treatment is that there is no social downtime. The skin may appear red for a few hours, but the exclusive post-care regimen works to soothe the skin, so most will only notice a post-treatment tightening and glow to their skin. Your provider may recommend no make-up for 24hrs, and of course, it is always important to use sun protection.
How long does a Virtue RF treatment take?
The length of a treatment depends on the area being treated and the protocol being followed. Typically, a full-face treatment will take 30 minutes.
Who is the right candidate for Virtue RF?
Virtue RF is a truly ageless procedure. It is used as a preventative and corrective treatment for patients with light to dark skin types. It is important to talk to your provider about any concerns you might have before your Virtue RF treatment.
What areas of the body can be treated?
The Virtue RF system has the capacity for multiple handpieces to optimize treatments in specific areas.
How many treatments will I need?
Most providers will recommend a series of three to four treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. To maintain results, a treatment every six months is recommended.
Can this treatment be combined with others?
For complete skin rejuvenation, patients may combine the Virtue RF treatment with a Tetra CoolPeel treatment. Discuss if you are a good candidate for this combination with one of our providers during a complimentary cosmetic consultation.

Virtue Smart RF Microneedling
The Virtue RF technology is a platform that combines fractional radiofrequency with microneedling for treatments on the face/neck, chest, hands, and body areas. It is safe on light and darker skin types and can be customized for each patient. This treatment is used to help improve the appearance of rough texture, fine lines, wrinkles, depressed scars, and superficial pigments. It stimulates collagen regeneration resulting in overall skin rejuvenation.
Virtue Deep RF
The Virtue Deep RF handpiece is used for advanced body applications. Using a smooth delivery of 36 gold-plated needles (the same as the Virtue Smart RF) combined with radiofrequency heat energy, this handpiece can also promote the remodeling of collagen and elastin in the tissue. The Virtue Deep handpiece is used for tightening and smoothing the skin. It can reduce fatty tissue and contour areas such as buccal or mid cheek, submental, arms, abdomen, inner/outer thighs, and buttocks. Scars and stretch marks can also be addressed deeper using the Virtue Deep. This treatment is done once a month to include 3-5 treatments. Optimal results are seen around six months after the last treatment. Maintenance can be done each year as the aging process does not stop. Genetics, lifestyle, and social habits can also affect the longevity of this treatment.
Virtue Exact RF
The Virtue Exact RF handpiece is a single-needle handpiece that combines microneedling with radiofrequency heat energy. The results are visibly improved skin tone, tightening of the skin, and the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. The Virtue Exact handpiece targets the eye area with complete precision addressing the lower eyes, eye bags, and festoons. This treatment is done once a month for 2-3 treatments by Dr. Antimarino.
